Gift Card Workshop

Recently my husband and I were in Barnes & Noble using some gift cards that we had received.  As we stood in line to check out, I noticed that there was a rack with their gift cards and, of course, their gift card holders.  We needed to pick up a gift card for a friend's birthday and I have to say, I just didn't like any of the holders they had.  I went home and decided to make up some of my own GC holders.  Before I knew it it, I had 5 different ones!  Then I wanted to be able to have a place to put the holders  where I would be able to find them next "gift giving" time.  I grabbed one of our My Creations Card boxes and altered it -- the GC holders fit PERFECTLY inside.

Here are pictures of the entire project:

GC #1 - Cruisin' paper

GC #2 - Footloose paper

GC #3 - Victory paper

GC #4 - Pemberley

GC #5 - Lucy paper

My Creations Card Box - Dreamin' paper
I had so much fun making these and received so many compliments decided to turn my project into a workshop.  The workshop will be held on April 14 at 10:00. All materials will be pre-cut for you.  The cost of the workshop is only $10 to make the 5 gift cards.  You will be given written instructions that you can take home with you so that you can make additional gift card holders.

If you would like to make the card box as well - there will be an additional $7 fee.  Again all materials will be pre-cut for you.  Kits are also available and can be shipped for an additional shipping charge.



  1. Love the idea, and they are so cute.

  4. Being an avid CTMH fan, I already own most of these paper packs. Would it be possible to purchase the gift card instructions? If so, please contact me at . Thanks, Sherry

  5. Sherry F - I am sending you an email. Thank you :)
